About 50 Aragon faculty and students gathered on the corner of Woodland Drive and Alameda de las Pulgas before school on Thursday, Jan. 19 to show their support of public education and undocumented students, just a day before President Donald Trump was inaugurated. After demonstrating with posters for about half an hour, the group participated in a ‘walk-in’ to school at 7:50 a.m.
Anders Zhou, co-president of Aragon’s GSA, reflects back on the peace and love protest at Central Park following the elections.
On Tuesday, Nov. 15, about 1,000 SMUHSD students walked out to Central Park, in a demonstration to promote values of acceptance and unity.
Near the end of the previous school year, as students in K-12 schools all over the nation sat down for state standardized testing, some parents refused to let their children participate.
